Temprature rise an me nah stop cry

from Buju Banton – Only Man Lyrics on Rap Genius


Cry in this case means ‘holler’, as in to ‘cry out’. Jamaicans, Rastas especially see singing and crying as similar. This is why they say ‘me cry, me bawl out’ etc. It is also why Bob Marley’s band was named The Wailers (wailing is intense crying). Singing is therefore an extension of what babies do at birth.
